A Moment in 2010

A Moment with Kuva

Today I joined 2300+ others on Reverb10 — For the month of December we will be reflecting on 2010 and manifesting 2011. Since today is Day 5 (Dec 5th) – I’ve been playing catch-up – I have already posted Day 1 and Day 2 over on Facebook.

I then read the prompt for Day 3 and I knew I needed to come here to write about it…

December 3rd – Moment – Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors).

As I read that statement – Kuva came into my mind. If you’ve been here before you know … Kuva is my chocolate lab who made his transition this past May 12th.

The moment that came to me was that day… May 12th… We were in the vet’s office – while others were there (Carol, Coryelle and the vet) for me … it was just me and Kuva. He was always so good at the vet’s office and today was no different….

As I realized this was the moment I was going to write about… I went back a little in time….

The car ride to the vets…. he was looking up – into the air … I was talking to him and he wasn’t looking at me… just up into the air.

A little earlier… That morning… I knew – He made his way over to my office, laid down and looked at me… and totally conveyed his message. It was time to help him leave this physical body….

The night before I thought he was going to leave on his on…. He went outside late at night – laying on the porch looking up into the sky. He was out there for a long time …? Every time I went to the window – I saw him just looking up at the sky….

As the vet was getting ready to give him the injection I had his head in my hands with my face touching his…. He then kissed me…. He was a born lover and he would kiss you all day… everyday – but the last few days he wasn’t kissing anymore…

Until that moment….

I felt the rough texture of his tongue … warm, moist… his warm breath upon my face…. and then I felt his life, our life together, flash before me… I saw him as a tiny puppy with his new purple collar and leash, as a teenager swimming in the creek, riding in the car, sharing our ice cream together…. 11 1/2 years flashed before me within a multi-second. I felt he transferred this to me… There was no one else in the room (though they were indeed there) it was just he and I….

He sent me his message of love, fun and appreciation… He filled me with intense knowing … that all is truly well.

When this all came to me… at first I thought – how odd I would be thinking of this moment as my most alive moment in 2010… But immediately realized it was indeed true. I was so connected… so connected to unconditional love, to the source of all there is.

In his moment of transition he gave me the gift of a moment of fully alive. 🙂

Kuva was indeed a very special being in the physical, and fortunately, remains with us as a very special being in the non-physical. Big Hugs, Kuva, and good to feel your presence last night.
